'Normal Weighing' is non-existent and sounds discriminatory and ignorant of you to say.

People can easily be Ectomorph, Mesomorph and Endomorph, height and weight and muscle mass acquiring-efficiencies will also easily differ.

What can you say is 'Normal Weighing'? Let alone I'd think going off of a median or average in North America would be skewed by the average obesity compared to 130-150lb-anything...

I think they need to go with Camilla Luddington. In the tomb raider behind the scenes vids she says she wants to do it. It would be a nice way to tie the reboot game to the reboot film lol.

Camilla Luddington must do the movie she did incredible voice work in Tomb Raider!

You can't be serious? The voice of Lara in the new Tomb Raider game is probably THE worst aspect of the game. Great game overall. Terrible voice acting (For Lara at least).

Oh well it seem's we both have different opinions, imagine that.

get out of here camilla is the perfect person she has the perfect voice and look and shie is british haters gonna hate ! I guess her boobs aint big enough
sourav93  +   909d ago
I guess that's a fair point. Though a lot of people have said that her voice acting wasn't up to the mark. The British accent sounded very artificial, and as I am British and live in the UK, I too think that. But like you said, each to their own.
CaptainYesterday  +   909d ago
Hope I didn't come off sounding rude or anything I'm just a big fan of Camilla Luddington's work. Also Camilla is British, originally from Berkshire it's funny that you say her accent sound's artificial of course her accent could be going away now that she lives in the US.

The VO Actress & the Actress both can't be Lara , but one of them can be the friend. hate to be the casting director or director tough times ahead for both.(me am kind of hoping Atwell gets the part)

She strikes me as too old for the role. Lara is 21 in the game, and Hayley Atwell is most definitely not close to that.

Hayley Atwell, yes please!!! She looks gorgeous in Captain America: The First Avenger.
Parapraxis  +   909d ago
I think she may be a little too old and her body is more like the old Lara's.
I really prefer the new Lara, she's a lot nicer. Camilla Luddington at least has the right shape.

one of my hopes for this movie is they get an Engilsh actress, but a good one of course, and they could do a lot worse than Hayley Atwell

Camilla Luddington may have done a good job in the game, but does she have the profile for a big studio picture like this?
MGM might want to go with a more well known name.

whoever they choose, just be thankful that Kim Kardashian rumour was false.
it was false wasn't it? O_O

Miss Atwell would so look the part! With having the English accent and shes an actress. I remember her in Captain America. Love the part where she punched that soldier in the face for trying to be funny.
FreshRevenge  +   909d ago
first of all, she doesn't even look like the new Lara. So wouldn't it be ideal if they actually got a person that actually looks like the character in the game. You can tell from the side by side shot, there is a huge difference.
VTKC  +   909d ago
I didn't think Jolie ever looked like Lara Croft but that didn't stop her playing as her twice.

I always thought Jessica Biel would look great as the next Lara Croft - ( http://thebestcelebritybodi... ) - ( http://www.tailslate.net/im... )..

..but no complaints with Hayley Atwell, she looked absolutely stunning in the Captain America movie.
